Garbage & Recycling in Estevan

 

The City of Estevan and Regens Disposal have teamed up and created the Garbage and Recycle Program. This service is included in your bi-monthly utility bill and is a mandatory charge per service address. The Recycle program takes place every 2 weeks and is split between West side and East sides of the City.


Garbage Collection

 

When is Garbage Day?

Regens Disposal has an automated Garbage pick up application on their website. All you have to do is choose how you want to be reminded and voila! Never miss another garbage day again.

 

 

Using the supplied Garbage Carts

  • Loose garbage should be bagged, this will keep loose papers from blowing onto street. 
  • Feel free to use plastic or paper bags of any size. 
  • Large items do not have to be bagged. 
  • Branches must be bundled and be able to fit in the bin. Branches should be no thicker than 6 inches. 
  • Please don't pack garbage in or exceed 200 pounds of waste. 
  • Only waste INSIDE the cart will be collected. 
  • Please notify Regens Disposal if your cart is damaged, stolen or vandalized. 
  • Please keep your cart clean and take care of it. 
  • Please have cart in it's place for pickup by 7AM. 
  • Pull the cart, don't push it - this will be much easier. 
  • Do not place hot ashes, construction debris, or hazardous waste, such as oil, paint cans, etc., in the cart. 
  • Do not paint or write on the cart. 
  • If you have difficulty moving your cart please contact Regens Disposal to discuss the options that are available to assist you.

 

Where do I place the cart?

On your designated pickup day, Regens Disposal has set your cart down in the preferred position to be emptied. This is where the cart should be placed on your collection day.

  • Cart should be on the street with the wheels against the curb.
  • Arrows on the carts should point to the centre of the road.
  • Give at least an arm's length of clearance on all sides of the cart.

My garbage/recycling bin is broken, who do I contact?

Contact the Utilities Clerk at City Hall and he/she will request a new bin to be delivered to your property by Regens Disposal. Deliveries usually run on Wednesdays and Fridays. 

I do not want my garbage and recycling bins, can I get them removed?

Yes, we can have Regens remove the bins BUT it is mandatory in the cities act that every residential property within City Limits be billed for garbage and recycling regardless of the use of them.
